In an ongoing study we analyzed results of visual function tests and op hthalmo logical findings in visually disabled athletes. These are contrasted with classification results of these athletes collected during international competitions. Because classifications of visual impairments are mostly based on visual acuity (VA) so far, but the procedures constituted for the determination of VA do not correspond with the EN-ISO-8596, we took the International Open German Championships in Athletics in Berlin (2005) to compare the conventional measuring methods with those obtained by modern computerized/standardized methods to assess visual function.
